‘He’s exhausted and ready for a break’: Denise Welch gives candid insight into son Matty Healy’s life as he juggles new ‘romance’ with Taylor Swift and The 1975 world tour
Denise Welch gave candid insight into her son Matt Healy’s life amid The 1975 hitmaker’s new romance with Taylor Swift.
The Loose Women star, who has Matty and son Louis, 22, with ex-husband Tim Healy, marked her 65th birthday on Monday and in honour of the big day spoke to OK! Magazine about her sobriety journey and her family.
She revealed her son was suffering with exhaustion as he continues to take his hit band around the world: ‘Matty is absolutely shattered. He’s on a world tour and as much as it’s hard to go, ‘Oh, please feel sorry for my boy’…
‘People don’t realise that it’s gruelling to be the lead singer, the creator, the writer, the producer of a massive show on the scale that Matthew does….
‘Then he gets on stage and gets in a plane and flies seven hours and then flies 24 hours. It’s a wonderful life, but he’s absolutely exhausted and ready for a break’.

Taylor and Matty first sparked romance rumors earlier this month following her shock split from British actor Joe Alwyn. The couple have now been spotted out and about seemingly confirming the union.
Gushing about her son once more, Denise said: ‘My son is a creative genius and I say that not just because he is my son. I’m privy to so much of the work he’s done before he hits the stage, what comes out of his mouth and out of his brain…
‘I just think, ‘Sometimes I can’t believe I gave birth to you. Where are you from?’ Louis and him are so supportive of each other. Their dad is a brilliant actor, so he has come from two very creative people.’
Denise spoke delightedly about her sobriety in the interview, while also lauding Matty for tackling his own addictions, after tackling heroin addiction, for which he entered rehab in November 2017.

She said: ‘Matty has had his demons and we’ve navigated them as a family and he’s come out the other side. We all support each other and I couldn’t be prouder of how he’s come through, with the help of his family and his friends’.
Tongues were set wagging on Saturday when Taylor made a VERY telling remark as she chatted on stage in Boston during her Eras tour.
The singer, 33, wowed crowds in Foxborough and gave her adoring fans a life update amid romance with Matty . The pair were caught ‘kissing’ and holding hands while on a romantic date in New York City on Thursday, May 11.
Speaking on stage Taylor looked incredible in a glitzy green outfit as she said from the heart: ‘It’s insane. I kind of just feel like telling you, that I don’t know, that just … I’ve never been this happy in my life in all aspects of my life ever before.’
Reaching out: Denise gave an update on his life
‘And I just want to thank you for being a part of that. It’s not just the tour, like, I don’t know, my life finally feels like it makes sense. So I thought I’d play this song which brings me a lot of happy memories.’
She then launched into a rendition of Question to her adoring crowds. It comes after Taylor and Matty were seen out and about together in NYC earlier this week.
The hot new couple were on a double date with Swift’s collaborator Jack Antonoff and his fiancée Margaret Qualley at Casa Cipriani, as captured by a fan on social media.
A witness told Page Six that Swift and Healy were seated next to one another in the lounge of the celeb hotspot and ‘security was around them’.
The source added that Swift and the 1975 frontman were ‘cuddling and kissing’ as they waited for their food.
